We do tons of special sizing in our studio, and recently upgraded our mannequin collection to reflect current shapes and sizes of the female figure, as the way we push and pull our selves, and our diets and exercise regimes, change over time.
So it was interesting to see this show at FIT
Pretty interesting……corsets for pregnant women? And their daughters? A corset that closed in the front liberated women?
Bustles? Rubber girdles? (I do remember the smell of rubber emanating from my mothers underwear drawer as a young girl!) Marilyn’s buttocks jiggling? Gasp!
My pics of mostly the fascinating underwear!
On thru May 5th
This show wasn’t really making me rush over to Moma for some reason, but I did
catch it a few weeks ago and found it more interesting than I thought. It’s really about
us, and the wearable things that have become staples in our lives, or have had cultural impact. Here’s a snippet of images…….hurry up, it closes tomorrow!
